Who are we, what do we do, and why do we do it?


We're Cartridge Mate, a dedicated specialist supplier of printer cartridges, printer replacement parts, printer repairs and printers themselves based in Cardiff, South Wales. 

The majority of our customers are UK businesses with a consistent need to print, but we supply to everyone from domestic home users, to schools and Council officials through to multinational businesses with 200+ UK locations. We even supply edible ink to chocolatiers!

Why do we do it? Simply put, because we wanted to offer a service to customers that was easy, convenient, transparent and most of all; personable.
One of our directors is a keen printer (to put it mildly!) and spotted that the printer cartridge industry was in need of a supplier that took away the stress of product codes, faults and ordering processes and made ordering, receiving and using cartridges a quick and easy task...... and thus Cartridge Mate was born!

We don't bombard our customers with marketing emails and offers, we don't have an OTT Twitter feed; we're simply a friendly voice at the end of the phone reminding you when you're about to run out of ink and offering to get some more with you for the very next day!

We can source any type of printer consumable including; 

-Ink cartridges 

-Laser toners  

-Fax ribbons

-Franking Inks

-Drum units
-Belt Units 

-Fuser units and many, many more!

Our Team

Kieran Fish - Owner & Director


The office voicebox, he never shuts up!

A member of the team since November 2011, I was actually Cartridge Mate's first full time employee! I've worn many hats during my time with the business from Lead Generator through to Sales Manager and eventually bought into the business and became director in May 2017.

I spend the majority of my time managing our lovely customers print demands as well as seeking out new customers to join our ever growing account base. Buying your ink elsewhere - why?! Let's have a chat about the savings I can make you.

Michael Baker - Owner & Director


The level-headed one who keeps us all in check!

A member of the team since October 2010, I have been around from when Cartridge Mate was still in it's infancy! I got involved with the business because I loved the ethos of easy & convenient service to customers, and I've never looked back!

Day to day I run the finances of the business as well as the personal development and coaching of our team members; and can often be found in the office half-heartedly making cups of tea!

Sean Meredith - Administrator & Credit Controller


The utility-man of the office, Sean can do it all!

A member of the team since February 2017, I was recruited to come in and look after the administration of the business & nowadays fill a variety of roles depending on the demands of the day!

My role now involves everything from the upkeep of our ledger and accounts through to managing payments and account activity of our customers & suppliers.

Chelsea the Pooch - Security & Entertainment


The trouble maker!

I've been with the team since April 2018, and was only 14 weeks old at the time!

My best guess is that they've brought me in to guard and protect the office, but instead I prefer to lay about looking cute and playful. If you're on the phone to the team and hear a squeeky toy in the background, it's probably me!
